    Test, do not guess. Each person has different needs, and those needs change over time. A functional medicine doctor  can tell you exactly what you need by conducting lab tests so you do not waste money and feel better faster. I personally do well on 50,000 IU liquid Vitamin D drops and 1500mg evening primrose oil, and methylated B Vitamins including B-12. I take nearly 15 supplements daily, but again I cannot recommend anything for anyone else other than getting a work-up. Wishing you well!

    15!!! Jeesh I only take 2000iu of vitamin d 
    surely 50,000 a day would be toxic for you?

    I only take vitamin D when I was first diagnosed (2011) my doctor told me to take 2000iu daily. Last year he told me to bump it up to 4000iu. Also the first 4+ years I took Avanox once a week,  then changed to tysabri. I recommend talking to your doctor about anything and everything you take.
